Place ICS CAS room 318, Pod Vodárenskou věží 2, Prague 8, also on Zoom.

Abstract: The talk will be about research and developments surrounding the R package blavaan. Specific topics include strategies for speeding up model estimation, methods for computing model information criteria, and extensions to complex models. I will try to discuss the research in the context of open science and reproducibility, which has been a theme of the software development. I will also provide some demonstrations along the way to illustrate the functionality of blavaan.
